This week in Sunday Snippets 8/6/23, I wanted to show you the invitation I received from Ron and Pat. They are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary.
Look at this beautiful photo of them at 17 and 19, and on the right at 87 and 89. I took a photo of the invitation, so it’s not as good as the real thing.
Ron spends his days in his “ship yard”, which is their second bedroom. And Pat does a lot of reading. I don’t think she paints much anymore.
Still in love; still holding hands and sharing a life together. Three children and numerous grands, etc. They are the epitome of long-lasting love. Something we don’t see very often anymore.
I was so touched by the similar photos of them, from long ago and then today. What a wonderful way to show their many years together.
Yes, I will be attending their celebration. It’s probably the first party-type event I’ve gone to in 30-40 years.
Lisa & Kinzi:
Kinzi had a little bit of a relapse Thursday. But Friday she was better and the vet took the tubes out of her back. She still has stitches, though, and they won’t come out until two weeks have passed.
Poor little thing is about to go crazy with that cone around her head. Imagine how hard it would be to sleep with that cone sticking out.
She’s been throwing up the antibiotics the vet gave her. So I hope they can get that figured out tomorrow morning when the vet opens.
It seems that nothing will be happening to the dogs that attacked them. The brick wall has already been erected.
So far it appears that no doctor or vet, according to what we understand, has alerted the authorities about the attack.
The dogs were fully vaccinated. And the owner has taken Lisa and Kinzi to all their medical appointments and has paid the bills.
These weren’t full-bred pit bulls; they were part pit bull. I don’t know if that matters or not.
Steve is back from Seattle. He said the Seattle airport was a nightmare.
Next month he’s off to Scotland. I think he’s a bit tired of traveling at this point. Three trips within a couple of months would be daunting, I can imagine. Especially at 78.
He said when he stepped off the plane into the muggy hot Oklahoma weather, it was so very different from his experience in Seattle. Night and day.
I imagine that was hard to adjust to.
But he’s always wanted to go to Scotland, so I imagine he’ll find himself having a good time.
I know many of you love traveling. But to me, the idea of airports and traffic and so many people sounds overwhelming.
I’m not at all afraid of flying, but being cooped up in an airplane with all those people is not something I’d want to do. So I doubt I’ll ever fly again.
There’s absolutely no place I want to go. I’ll take home, thank you very much.
I don’t know what happened to the morning glories I planted. There has not been one bloom. But I noticed that the moon flowers are starting to bloom.
I ordered these seeds, as well as lobelia seeds and the morning glory seeds, from Amazon.
The purple lobelia seeds never even came up around the big fern. The morning glory plant has many leaves on the vines, but no blooms so far.
Maybe it’s just too hot for seeds to germinate. Is that a thing?
Several times a day I go out and put an ice cube or two in the little containers of water for the squirrels. I noticed that the wasps are there a lot as well.
Below is that fern today.
Ivy has had a lot of visitors. Friday Jeani and her little black dog, Ollie, came over. She had never met Ollie, and he seemed very excited to see a cat.
Jeani’s front door faces my front door across the sidewalk. She has macular degeneration and has already lost sight in one eye.
Peggy has been over here 3-4 times this week. And of course Lisa and Kinzi. They’re usually here a few times a day when Lisa takes her for a walk. I keep treats for Kinzi and the other dogs.
Ivy tends to guard her two tubs of toys when Kinzi is around. Oh, they’re so much like children that never grow up!
So that’s my week. I rarely go out into this horrid heat and humidity. I’m so glad I can order what I need and have it all delivered right to my door!
It rained yesterday and it’s raining again today. My favorite kind of day.
